Hi there,

I just got the sac binary file for MacOS from IRIS but I cannot install it.

I tried the instruction on the email and also on the IRIS website and also on the internet but I was not able to install it on my Mac.

Honestly I am not so familiar with MacOS and I have PC. I almost work on PC.

Do you have any installer edition like software for windows?

Thanks

  • Hi Hessam,
    If you post your error messages, some one could diagnose the problem. I've
    found that installing the linux version even on a Mac is straightforward
    and error-free if you follow the instructions properly. Perhaps you should
    try this.

  • Dear Hessam,



    Installing SAC on windows is a bit headache and need a lot of package to be
    installed.

    If you want to install SAC on windows you need to install Cygwin first and
    all its dependents packages.

    I once installed SAC on Windows before, a long time a ago.

    But later I moved to Linux.



    If you want SAC on windows follow this link for Cygwin:

    http://splitting.gm.univ-montp2.fr/Cyg4Seis/Cygwin4seismology.html

    Cygwin is a Linux like environment on Windows. But not a real Linux.

    So better for you to install the real Linux on Windows and then work with
    any software supporting Linux system.

    So, to install SAC on a real Linux environment at Windows OS by using Oracle
    Virtual Box(the secret), then installing the Ubuntu Linux and then
    installing SAC. May be the installation look like complicated but the steps
    is clear and very effective on using any future software's supporting Linux.



    Installation by order:

    1-Oracle Virtual Box

    https://www.virtualbox.org/



    2-Ubuntu

    https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop



    3- SAC

    https://ds.iris.edu/ds/nodes/dmc/software/downloads/sac/



    this page will give you instructions on how to install SAC on Linux (via
    Virtual Box).

    5-1-x-on-ubuntu-linux/

    the above link if you want to install a graphing and mapping software on
    Linux (via Virtual Box).

    It's easy and in clear steps.



    I hope this could help you in your research and help other members,
